The pulses ease pain by preventing pain signals from reaching the brain.

- No medication needed!
- Causes a tingling sensation in the area treated
- Self treatment sessions will take approximately 15 minutes
Arnica Gel Natural Knee Pain Treatment
Knee pain causes you to often walk around with a limp. Favoring the knee for extended periods of time may cause the muscles around the knee to weaken and make the problem worse. Dr. Oz said that if you experience knee pain you should treat the problem as soon as possible to keep the muscles from weakening. He are more remedies that were talked about on today’s (October 16) Dr. Oz show :
Arnica Gel – Rub the gel on to the knee (or any other area of the body that is causing you pain) several times a day. The Arnica Gel will help to soothe the pain. You can purchase this gel for under 10 dollars.
Ginger Tea – Who would ever thought that simply drinking a soothing tea can also soothe knee pain. In fact, Ginger has natural pain relieving ingredients and can provide you some much needed relief for aches and pains. Add 1/2 teaspoon of powdered ginger to a mug of hot water. Drink two cups of ginger tea a day for pain relief.
